Practical Tools for Control, Survival, and Success Thursday, June 18, 2015 9:00am–4:30pm Los Angeles City College (Student Union Building) The California Community Colleges Small Business Sector Program is bringing the Profit Mastery curriculum to California Community Colleges by providing FREE training to enable faculty to deliver the Profit Mastery curriculum to their students. Profit Mastery is the internationally-recognized 16-hour “Mini MBA in Finance” that has enabled hundreds of thousands of business owners to drive up the two most critical elements of their business: improved profitability and increased cash flow. The unique Profit Mastery curriculum links together the income statement and the balance sheet in a way that is eye-opening to business owners and gives them the ability to truly gain control of their businesses. The curriculum is delivered through live, facilitated-video programs led by Certified Facilitators, and is also available online as a self-study model. These two delivery methods can also be combined to enable faculty to deliver part of the program in the classroom, with students completing the rest online, and then coming back together for in-class discussion and review. Profit Mastery Facilitator Certification training will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2015 at Los Angeles City College. This program includes one day of live training, presented by Rod Bristol, an internationally-respected financial trainer, plus eight hours of online, selfstudy via streaming HD-video. At the end of the training, each participant will be Certified to utilize the Profit Mastery curriculum with their students. There is no cost for this instruction, and the course includes the Profit Mastery workbook (a $195 value) and lunch on the 18th. This course also qualifies for 7.5 hours of CPE credits for CPAs.

All of us are in agreement that this is a course we will be recommending to our peers, and we encourage incorporation at other institutions. Every graduate should feel as confident in their understanding of business as we do after completing this course.” — C. Wendt, Washington State University “The course was an overwhelming success with students. The material was comprehensive, providing a complete set of tools to understand, analyze and manage the financials of any company. The format was entertaining enough to keep the students fully engaged, and it was effective, as evidenced by the progress and performance of the students throughout the semester.” — Terry Cornelison, SBDC, WSU Research and Technology Practical Tools for Control, Survival, and Success Thursday, June 18, 2015 9:00am–4:30pm Los Angeles City College (Student Union Building) How You Can Use the Curriculum LIVE Most faculty and students think of finance as being boring, but the Profit Mastery video curriculum enables you to present finance in plain English, taking complex financial concepts and converting them to simple, yet powerful financial decision-making tools, and, students have fun in the process! (Really!) Profit Mastery gives you, the faculty member, the ability to take your students through a powerful analytical journey through a company’s financial statements. Your students learn about the primary causes of business success-or failure. You will help them underscore the importance of routinely measuring the financial health of their business and how to quickly identify problem areas. You will help them marry together an income statement and balance sheet into incredibly powerful “management intelligence”. Using the unique Profit Mastery financial Road Map, the program will help your students discover key areas in business that may need immediate attention. Your students will be able to identify ways to increase cash flow and profitability-and that’s more good news! Do business owners know how costs behave in their business? We firmly maintain that this information must be “walking around in your head” knowledge. Not only does the behavior of costs have a significant impact on profitability, but it also impacts your students’ marketing strategies. For example, business owners need to understand: • • • • E N I L ON If their rent increases, how much will they need in sales to cover the additional costs? If they raise prices, how much could their sales drop but still learn the same profit? If their sales decrease, how much and where will they need to cut costs to maintain their current profitability? How much will they need to sell if they want to earn a specific profit? Break-even analysis is the powerful tool that makes short work of these questions. The Profit Mastery curriculum will give you the tools to enable your students to master one of the most simple (yet often misunderstood), practical financial tools available to businesses today. Historically, business owners have been poorly prepared when they approach a financial institution for a loan, and are often too busy to even hear a few of the banker’s ideas regarding the importance of a strong balance sheet. Those who sit across the desk from their banker, showing preparation and efficiency in their business, have a much greater chance of leaving the bank with a positive outcome. You will enable your students to take specific action steps to improve their business efficiencies, and have an understanding of how to better prepare to deal with their financing partners. They will learn how to communicate with them in their “language” and to get to that happy three letter word, YES! Included with this information are testimonials from both faculty and students who have completed the Profit Mastery curriculum. You will find the student reaction to be highly positive and that is very unusual for a finance course! Profit Mastery gives you the ability to deliver financial acumen to students in a highly efficient, very professional manner.
